to the white house where president obama is making an announcement, expected to nominate the next cabinet secretary. straight to the press room. >> thank you. everybody have a seat. have a seat. as i've said before, my top priority as president is doing everything we need to do to make sure that we're growing our economy and that we're strengthening our middle class. as i said in my state of the union address last month, every day we should be asking ourselves three questions. one, how do we make sure america is a magnet for good jobs. number two, how do we equip people with the skills they need to get those jobs? and number three, how do we make sure that hard work actually pays off in a decent living? these are the challenges that i've been instructed my team here at the white house and in my entire cabinet to focus on. and a position that's instrumental to tackling these challenges is having an outstanding secretary of labor. so i want to begin by thanking hilda solice and her entire team. including acting secretary seth harris. for the outstanding work they've been doing over the past
said that the white house is a reality show. this is a woman via mark burnett did her own reality show and she accused barack obama of having a reality show. >> she's got a tart approach and she gives a good show, reality or not reality. but i don't think she's a serious political factor in the republican party. and i have to say if i was going it take political advice from someone in that spat, it would be from karl rove and not from sarah palin. >> thank you very much. ruth marcus, i can't see you -- taking advice from either one. but to be continued. and meanwhile, the blame game, the republican party chairman, raince priebus took a thinly veiled shot at his predecessor in trying to explain what went wrong for the gop. >> for quite a while when we walked into the inc, both credit cards of the rnc were suspended. this is before i walked in. now just think about this for a second. if you got one of two of the biggest national political parties in the world, that has both credit cards suspended. >> are you saying that former chairman steele ruined the party or at least the rnc financia

-term elections, and then someone else writes to dean, it will never get through the house unless, of course, obama comes out against it. so dean, people seem skeptical about congress. is that shocking? >> not shocking at all. it's unreal. you know what makes it really unbelievable to all of us is that 90% of americans in polls support universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, what's called the gun show loophole. the assault weapons ban will never pass. that's the interesting thing. congress does nothing. doesn't work on the budget. you know, doesn't pass gun control to. me i think we should take a page from the nhl owners and nfl owners and lock congress out for a month. let them work at a motel 6. they are not doing the jobs. republicans and democrats should unify on the outside and make them do something object inside for us. >> i stopped reading tweets on the air, but i'm doing it just for you, all right? >> this is big. this is retro. >> followed up the skeptics with this question. how can we push congress to just get things done? one of your fans tweeted i'd lock them all in
. will charm be enough to bridge the differences in the battle of the budget? president obama reaches out to all members of congress just as house republicans and senate democrats come out with dramatically different blueprints for our fiscal future. what are the chances for a compromise? we will ask two is senators leading the debate, democrat dick durbin and republican bob corker. then, republican at a crossroads. as conservative activists gather in washington, gop leaders argue about the future of the party. we'll discuss differences within the gop with matt kibbie of freedom works and former congressman steve latourette of the republican mainstream partnership. >>> the u.s. responds to north korean threats by beefing up its missile defense as the president heads to israel. we will ask our sunday panel whether mr. obama has the right answers to foreign policy challenges around the world. and our power player of the week. a celebrity chef combines the classic with the cutting edge. all right now on "fox news sunday." >> chris: hello again and happy st. patrick's day from fox news in was
is a lesson house and senate and the present vote on the alternative, there is a spending reduction from obama's wish list over the next decade. it is automatic. if republicans if republicans say we do not want to stop it, it does not stop. what obama thought was going to happen because he sought a handful of republicans on shot shows saying, oh, we will get the papers -- the vapours if defense increases are not carried out. that is not where the country is. it is not where the modern republican party is. it is not even where the republicans in the house and senate are. there are some guys on spending committees that would like to spend some and that is understandable. but at the end of the day, we should probably figure out how to give the pentagon more flexibility. they need to save the same amount of dollars promised in the sequester as the rest of the government does. thepresident is judge, leading republicans would panic during the negotiations on the fiscal cliff -- be leaving republicans would panic during negotiations on the fiscal cliff. he kept thinking they would put the sequester o
but that it continues and is sound. >> current head is edward dimarco, which has put him at laggerheads with house democrats, who in january of 2012 asked president obama to replace ed dimarco. gerri: i have to talk about this idea of getting rid of mortgage deduction, right now it is being discussed for people with very bis mortgages or second homes, a lot of wealthy people who they say are okay with that, i look at the confluence of the story, mel watt on one hand saying we have to get more loans to people who may not be able to afford them. that is what we learned in the financial crisis. and let's take the deduct away from people who make the mortgage does that make sense to you? >> it does not, it is typical of convoluted way that washington thinks about issue, the issue is tax reform, if you do tox reform and lower rates mortgage interest deduct has to be on the table. i've been fascinated by proposal back that simon bowles commission said if we eliminated all of these deducts you could get tax rate to 8, 13 and 23%, much more simplified tax system, if you add them back it is hard to know wh
rivers, abc news, rome. >> new at 11:00, president obama is set to name a new secretary of labor. a white house source says thomas perez of the justice department will be nominated to head the labor department. he has strong support from latino and labor groups and he could run into problems from republicans. now a follow-up to a story we first brought you last night at 11:00. the meat and poultry industry is pushing back against those hard to watch videos of animal cruelty. it is videos like these that the new legislation appears to want to restrict. a bill sponsored by the cattle man's association would require anyone collecting evidence of abuse to turn it over to authorities within 48 hours. they say abuse should be stopped as soon as possible rather than waiting until someone makes a video. critics contend that the industry should want to stop the cruelty rather than the documenting of it. >>> a mystery in southern california has animals baffled. the starving sea lion pups are washing up on beaches more and more each week and no one is sure why. clayton sandal explains many are worki

, the fact of the matter is, obama has been to this -- about $6 trillion during his watch and so have the republicans in the house. maybe not the first two years but the rest. what have they done? i look at my stumps that's what they're supposed to look at -- look at my constitution. all tax bills come out of the house of representatives. all of them. then they say they don't have any power? when boehner announces we're not going to shut down the government, when it was shut down for three weeks when newt gingrich was trying to control bill clinton and his spending, and he is giving up his card. when boehner says we don't have an immediate dead crisis he is giving up his cards. he doesn't want to actually do something about this but likes being speaker. >> neil: they're looking at the next -- the end of this month we're facing yet another potential crisis. they're going to argue that the government could shut down. and this is their attempt to say, we won't brick -- bring it to that pranksmanship because we don't want it on our door step we caused it. but it's going to boomerang on th

, and the republican house would have to agree. now, the republican house is not going to allow them to raise taxes on the american people, and that's how you force a conversation about reform. the reason why there's been no reform during the obama years, no entitlement reform, no welfare reform, is that they just raise taxes and spend more money. but when you stop them from having the ability to raise taxes, then they have to reform government to decide how to allocate resources and how to prioritize. that's the beginning of getting reform. and you're quite right that republicans need to be better at walking through with everybody why they're doing things, what they're up to and speaking directly to people, because you can't always expect cbs to articulate the republican position as accurately as we might like. >> host: smiley 22 writes in on twitter: with the trillion dollars of spending cuts in the last three years, when will we see the economy take off, mr. norquist? >> guest: okay. we haven't had a trillion dollar in spending cuts what we had was an agreement by the president of the united sta

the prime minister of ireland to the white house and then mr. obama embarks on a very important trip overseas to the middle east where he'll sit down with israeli leaders and also meet with leaders of palestinian authority before making his way to jordan. during this trip mr. obama is expected to issue a very strong warning to iran they will not be able to develop nuclear weapons. >> coming up this week on wall street a host of major companies will report their earnings. we'll hear from fedex, general mills, nike, and tiffany. the fed announces its latest rate decision. that comes on wednesday. we'll be listening very closely to comments from central bankers on overall economic recovery especially after a particularly strong february jobs report. then on thursday we'll get the latest existing home sales numbers for the month of february. those are key because existing home sales actually make up about 90% of the overall housing market. that will show us if this rebound we've seen seeing this housing is continuing. we'll track all of that and the latest business news for you on cnn mo
democrats, but particularly at the clinton white house they were interested in getting copies of "the weekly standard." obama, i don't think so. but the people in politics read it. particularly republicans. not just elected officials but consultants, strategists, people in government and so on read it. and then we have, we make sure that we have a great readership in the journalistic community in washington. i mean, about 400 copies on the weekend on sunday. they get one at home. and which if you get one on sunday, right, they have a lot better chance of reading it than they would if they get it in the office on monday when they are flooded with other things. so you have the political community, the journalistic community and the academic community. being at the new republic, i remember how, how widely read the new republic was in the academic community. of course, they did not like my stuff. i get letters saying why are you there? at the conservative academic community is a lot smaller, but we circulate among them, too. when you have that great readership, it helps. >> in the wikipedia site

,400. you know, it sounds like house speaker john boehner agrees with president obama when it comes to the debt crisis. listen to this. >> it could be a year, two years, three years, four years, it's not an immediate problem-- you agree with the president on that? >> yes, but his point as he went on to say in that interview is that we don't, we don't really need to do anything at this point and i would argue that we do need to do something. stuart: okay. joining us now is rich, the media watch dog. speaker boehner seems to be in line with the president, playing down the debt in the immediate future. i want to know how is the media responding to the latest salvo from speaker boehner? >> well, they're not really responding to speaker boehner and they didn't respond to the president he when he said something different on tuesday. on tuesday the president said it wasn't an immediate crisis, but he also said we had ten years, sustainable for ten years. stuart: hold on a second. are you saying that the establishment media is just ignoring the debt and what the president and speaker boehne
is standing by at the white house with more. rich? >> this announcement scheduled for inside the white house. it's about 10 minutes from now. thomas perez, president obama's choice to lead the department of labor. he comes directly from the department of justice where he's the head of the civil rights division, the division responsible for enforcing federal discrimination statutes. white house officials point to the fact that he helped settle the three largest fair lending cases in the department history as some of the reasons why he should be the head over at labor. however, republicans are pointing to a report issued by the department of justice's i.g. last week, the inspector general that basically said that division that perez leads is still in two camps. they're examples of harassment, inappropriate personnel attacks and the i.g.'s report basically found all those issues predate president obama's tenure in office. however, they really haven't been addressed to the satisfaction of the i.g., inspector general, thus far. mr. perez says he's worked with the department, that there have been
is raising serious questions about the obama administration's handling of the benghazi terror attacks and the aftermath. senator lindsey graham accuses the white house of telling injured survivers of those attacks to quote, be quite and not share their stories. now he's willing to do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of this happen. >> i'm going to hold up the pweufs the senate until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple. their story is chilling. they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. jon: let's talk about it with bret baier the anchor of special report and a guy who has done a great deal of reporting on what happened in the benghazi situation. there are 33 survivors of the attacks who were evacuated from the diplomatic facilities there, bret? >> reporter: yes, jon, a lot of them fall into the cia category and probably will not be heard from, undercover agents. you do have at least four state department officials, state department security and a contractor who were injured in the attack, and you have people like senator grah

obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republ

. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back home saying, do this, do that, do this. and it's not climate change. so until they feel that they have to act many of them probably won't. and in fact, almost you couldn't find a worse problem that fits with
't in the policymaking aspect of the white house back in the '9s but she remembers what the interactions were like. rahm emanuel is back. he was by bill clinton's side, certainly an adviser, and now he is there with president obama, and it sort of informs a little bit of the mood of needing to be bullish and needing to be strong when it comes to dealing with benjamin netanyahu, because everybody has been there before. i had american officials tell me benjamin netanyahu thinks he can wait this out until we leave, but we're going to be here longer than him. so we can just try to move the ball forward a little bit here and there until he is edged out of the political scene because that's just the nature of politics in israel. but benjamin netanyahu has just been re-elected. so there were a series of miscalculations. but i think that what i would like to remind people of is that there is a tendency in the arab world, and possibly around the world to always say, america is just wrong it's america's fault. america didn't deliver. i think to some extent there is absolutely truth to that. but i think that it's

. if these weren't bad enough, the republican continuing resolution that was passed in the house does not include $35 million in emergency aid funding or $10 million for the part c medical clinics that president obama announced would happen on world aids day in 2011. while all of the cuts to health programs are problematic, these cuts are especially devastating because the part c medical clinics are there for financially and medically needy populations that need their service. so our goal -- so are those all the cuts republicans are proposing? no, they are not. they are proposing to pass a budget for fiscal year 2014 and the republican budget would take the cuts in health programs hurting millions of americans even further. it would cut $810 billion from the medicaid program over the next 10 years and make it a block grant, which as we heard in testimony at today's hearing at the health subcommittee would jeopardize health care for children, the disabled, the elderly and the poor. the most vulnerable in our country. it would raise medicare eligibility age and turn it into a voucher for future ben
